I wish that I could rate this book twice. The first half of the book describes Dr. Farmer's childhood, the life choices he made and the strongly held beliefs that have guided him in his service to the poor. This first half gets 5 out of 5 stars.
The second half is a current view of Dr. Farmer's day to day schedule. The writer follows Dr. Farmer as he travels between clinics in Central America, Peru, Russia and elswhere while engaging the Doctor in philosophical arguments about healthcare funding and politics. This second half gets 4 out of 5 stars.

I wish that John McPhee had written this book, but I guess I am being greedy. At 72 I suppose McPhee could not have kept up with Paul Farmer well enough to do him justice. This stunning account of Dr. Farmers' work with the worlds sick and poor(the two seem to be synonymous) moved me more deeply than I could have imagined. Be prepared to sell your house and car and move to Central America.
